book on the market called how the technology can fix the budget and establish obama's legacy. the co-authors are both fcc officials. reed hundt in the clinton administration, and blair levin spent time there as the national broadband plan. gentlemen, thanks for being here. mr. hundt. your book's subtitle. how can technology fix the budget and help us over the so-called fiscal cliff. >> guest: that is the subtitle and it's a bit of a mouthful. the fundamental idea here is if you spend time in silicon valley, spend time in detroit where the automobile industry is being rebuilt. you spend time outside the beltway you see that america has the potential to generate abundance for its own citizens and for the world. you spend time only inside the beltway it looks like a zero sum game, looks like lose/lose and who is going to lose the most is the gist of the negotiations. so what we tried to say in the book, what are the lessons of the technology sector, that comes from the optimism in the technology sector and how they can give us ideas we can pass into law here in washington, dc. >> host: you talk about tw

for service, has the obama administration done a lot to lower the cost of health care going forward so we don't need to do much more? what do you think is in practical terms what needs to be done on health care if you poll people they say we all want to cut medicare celerity want to go dealing with that piece of the puzzle? >> that reminds me when i was in graduate school i went to study foreign policy and was right around the time they balanced the budget and i thought my gosh what am i going to do? so i realized the long-term problems were still there and i had to make a choice whether social security or health care and it was easy, social security is easy supply jumped into becoming a social security expert because health care is so hard. they're really is no other issue at the core of all of this. we don't know the answers and the best thing that we can do right now is putting in place as many different attempts to control health care costs and evaluating what works so we don't with a fork or not we've seen the costs coming down, and that could be in anticipation that could be temporary a

have some smart proposals, i think, coming out of the obama administration that would sort of move this along. on the other side of the ledger, culture, right? which, you know, when you look at popular media, you still basically see the repetition of the old stigma. um, and i would put on the other side of the ledger some of these really worrisome issues about some of the wage trends. so in theory what you'd want is you'd want a national campaign here, right? i mean, you'd really want the federal government to basically seize the moment, carpe diem, let's move ahead. if we don't have that, how do people perceive the next three or five years? let's say we get seven states, ten states, we get dozens of mayors and county leaders to do what matters with their business leaders, with their university leaders, with the skills. can we have a true renaissance lacking of center? i mean, how do you think this plays out? >> >> i absolutely think so because, look, the action is at the local level. >> right. >> you know, people aren't waiting around for washington, d.c. to figure things out. >>

. >> -- [inaudible] with "the washington post." president obama, of course, promised in his first term to take a leadership role on immigration reform and disappointed many supporters in the fact that he didn't get comprehensive reform moving. he's pledged again to do so. at his first press conference in november, he wanted to see a bill early on this next term. now he's introduced yesterday legislative ideas for gun control, he's got another debate over fiscal policy coming. what does leadership mean from the president, in your mind? what do you want to hear in the state of the union, and how much effort needs to come from the white house, or is there a better idea that something would emerge from the senate and the president would take more of a support i have role in some way? -- supportive role in some way? >> it's a very good question, and i think part of the problem is we don't -- the answer here is not to hear another great speech about immigration reform, okay? so we need some alaska. but my sense is that this is what happens when immigration reform is important, but it's not the numbe
